sigsetops(3)             BSD Library Functions Manual             sigsetops(3)


NAME

     sigaddset, sigdelset, sigemptyset, sigfillset, sigismember -- manipulate
     signal sets


LIBRARY

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


SYNOPSIS

     #include <signal.h>

     int
     sigaddset(sigset_t *set, int signo);

     int
     sigdelset(sigset_t *set, int signo);

     int
     sigemptyset(sigset_t *set);

     int
     sigfillset(sigset_t *set);

     int
     sigismember(const sigset_t *set, int signo);


DESCRIPTION

     These functions manipulate signal sets, stored in a sigset_t.  Either
     sigemptyset() or sigfillset() must be called for every object of type
     sigset_t before any other use of the object.

     The sigemptyset() function initializes a signal set to be empty.

     The sigfillset() function initializes a signal set to contain all sig-
     nals.

     The sigaddset() function adds the specified signal signo to the signal
     set.

     The sigdelset() function deletes the specified signal signo from the sig-
     nal set.

     The sigismember() function returns whether a specified signal signo is
     contained in the signal set.

     These functions are provided as macros in the include file <signal.h>.
     Actual functions are available if their names are undefined (with #undef
     name).


RETURN VALUES

     The sigismember() function returns 1 if the signal is a member of the
     set, 0 otherwise.  The other functions return 0.


ERRORS

     Currently, no errors are detected.
